Scientists discover mice can sing and mimic complex sounds

Male mice can sing like humans, using high-pitched love songs to woo females and even spice up their tunes to overcome any competition, a new study has found.
Researchers found the mice have certain brain features, somewhat similar to humans and song-learning birds, which they may use to change their sounds.
“We are claiming that mice have limited versions of the brain and behaviour traits for vocal learning that are found in humans for learning speech and in birds for learning song,” said Duke neurobiologist Erich Jarvis, who led the study.
